Hey I was wondering, is it normal for crazy deep string indents to appear in my calluses? :confused: I've been playing almost all day for the last 2 months or so. is there a way to prevent this? A wsay to make them go away? Thanks!

It happens to everyone, why do you want to prevent it?

Because it's hurting my finger placement.

super glue on your fingertips.

Or if you are more extreme you could put superglue on the fingertips then place your fingertips on your shoulder. Then rip them off when the glue is will have a layer of your dead skin cells...

It makes it harder to quickly switch strings.

I'm afraid that doesn't help much.

Just get used to it...?

It is not the biggest deal in the world.

No you're right it's not a big deal, but it slows down my note changing

It will go away.

Just practice playing cleanly. Speed is not always the key.

Hm. I guess that's true.

Just a note, i play acoustic. But i play it as if its electric, and i dont use chords. I just bar or use power chords (which is the same position in different places, so much simpler). When i tried using regular chords, it hurt my fingers SO BAD. I already had played violin for four years, and had gone through the 'callus phase' twice. But for me, it didnt go away. It doesnt matter if you just ignore it. Some people just have calluses. I've had one where my pencil rests for almost six years from drawing. It wont go away. Maybe its the same for your guitar calluses. You can do one of two things: Change your playing style, or wrap your fingers in gauze or a bandage (just trust me, it works).

Good luck,

Play for about a year and then your fingers will get used to it:) 2 months is nothing in guitar playing. Practice and don't think about it:)
